When I was little, my mother kept on buying me red sweaters telling me the colour suited me. For some reason I didn't like it. At all. I guess it was too flashy and I felt uncomfortable being so noticeable. Twenty years later, matte bright red is pretty much the only lipstick shade I wear, and I probably got over my initial shyness since I have no problem wearing red from head to toe as you can see.
Moral of the story: Mothers know best.
Love those Miu Miu shades!
